Teaser Tuesday 25: Blood Ties



Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

* Grab your current read.
* Open to a random page.
* Share (at least) two “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page.
* BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
* Share the title & author, too, so that other participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teaser!


Finished reading this one over the weekend!

Blood Ties is book twelve in Kay Hooper's Bishop/SCU series. One thing I found helpful in this book is the inclusion of an index of characters and their abilities, as well as footnotes throughout referencing books in which previous events occurred. The Special Crimes Unit is a unit of the FBI that deals with unexplainable crimes, or those with "supernatural" elements. Each of the agents assigned to this unit has different psychic abilities. In this particular scene, Diana and Hollis, both mediums, are looking for a way out of "the gray time," a corridor between the worlds of the living and the dead.


Down the corridor a bit, one of the doors swung inward with a faint but audible creak.

"Oh, that can't be good," Hollis said.

(pg 69, hardcover)








Book Blurb:
The elite Special Crimes Unit, the FBI’s most controversial and effective team, is a group of mavericks and misfits trained to use their unique psychic abilities to hunt the worst monsters imaginable – human ones. Led by the enigmatic Noah Bishop, the SCU team has earned a reputation for pitting their skills and cunning against killers that other cops fear. But this time Bishop and his agents face an enemy who has them in his sights, a trained sniper with a deadly
plan — and more than one ace up his sleeve. Read more

Wonder why... My teaser is from Mr. Darcy Broke My Heart.

Jennifer: Me too, both her thrillers and her older romance novels (which I'm still making my way through). *g*

Alice: Thanks, it was a good one. She really left us with a cliffhanger at the end of this one, too. Argh!
